I just posted its location in the favorite places to eat thread.
It was mentioned on CNN yesterday that Sheryl and her beau were heading "South to the beach" for a while once he wraps up the Tour loose ends.
So if you think you see them out and about somewhere, it probably is them.
They are probably heading to the south of France...St. Tropez, ect... I may swing by there for a day or 2 if I just won the Tour de France for the 7th time!
I've been there, and in my opinion our beaches are much prettier, even after Hurricane Dennis. The biggest advantage to the beaches on the Med is that you don't have to worry about tan lines, if you get my drift.
Although I would looove to say that I have vacationed there, I can't. I'm sure the south Walton beaches are much nicer! And do they have the Red Bar in St. Tropez? That's what I thought!
Now I'm really curious to know if it's the south of France or the USA. Everyone keep us posted if you see them...inquiring minds want to know! :roll:
They're definitely headed to the south of France. It was in the papers this morning.
But I wouldn't rule out future Lance sightings at the Red Bar. He keeps talking about how he's going to hang out for awhile and hoist beers...
I'm beginning to understand how tabloids and paparazzi make their money. :roll:
just watched her interview and am so intrigued by her, she personifies class, right now they are in the south of France. don't know where she really lives but am sure she and Lance are not buying ciggies at the Tom Thumbs!
Hmmm...I'm thinking Kurt has just come up with another moneymaking plan for himself...
Not to mention publicists... Anyone hiring!
It's just a totally different experience than South Walton. Imagine lying poolside on a chaise longue overlooking the Med. You lift your finger, and an attendant is ready to take your food or drink order or spritz your face with icy-cold Evian water. If you want to shop, yet sun, just request what you want, and it can be brought to you by salespeople from Fred, Chopard, Cartier, Chaumet, Bulgari, Van Cleef & Arpels, Christian Dior, Lanvin, Valentino, Ferragamo, Gucci, Herm?s, Prada and Louis Vuitton - all while sunbathing without tan-line worries. If that isn't luxury enough, you can always be entertained by the huge yachts with cranes depositing their limos, Bentleys, etc., on shore for transportation. Or watching their smaller craft (each of which I'd be happy with) being lowered from the yacht as transportation to/from the yacht. Nighttime entertainment is black tie (or not - your preference) at a grand casino. Oh, and did I forget the fabulous cuisine?
I've skinny-dipped in the pools at the Hotel Artz (Ritz-Carlton) in Barcelona while people were dining, and that seemed to be totally unshocking there.
To experience this is unforgettable, but I'd rather be in South Walton, closer to my roots and away from all of the excesses of the material world. Yes, there is wealth in the Florida Panhandle, but it doesn't compare to what I've seen on the Med.
They should be so lucky to have Kurt take their photo! It would probably be way too quality for the tabloids...and Kurt is way too quality to stalk for $$$$....hmmmm, right Kurt?
I was happy to read this and completely agree. I grew up at the beach in CA and have been in Europe and many US beaches, nothing compares to here. A good friend was saying to me we should go to Southbeach. Another told me of Jamaica where we could stay in this villa she knows that has a driver and babysitters and we could shop and eat out and the beaches were gorgeous and you can swim with dolphins etc etc. She said there were even Cabanaboys.... ok, I won't go there. I thought about it for a minute and realized, no, even though in my past when all the glitz seemed more important, I'd so much rather be on Seagrove Beach at sunset with a Dos Equis and lime, toes in the sand, eating some cheese and grapes than anywhere else in the universe-wearing my Guccie shades, of course but none the less, SoWal is the most special place I've ever been.
Wow...That is so amazing. It is truly easy to get wrapped up in all of that. Some of my friends planned a trip to St. Barths for New Year's, but had to turn it down. Our high school/college crew has been in Grayton for the past 8 years for New Years and you can't ruin that tradition for an overpriced trip to St. Barths! When I was living in New York I didn't even stay for a new year's. No after watching last night's season premier of Laguna Beach...that seems like another option. Especially if you become as beautiful as the people on the show for just living there!
I know David Goldflies, didn't know he was one of the Allman Brothers Players.
David has been discussed in earlier posts.
Just got word from some friends of mine that were at the Red Bar last night. They saw Sheryl and Lance with another couple.
Wonder whether they wait two hours for a table like the regular folks?
